Furry Scurry~

It's Louie's favorite time of year!!!  Time to get ready for the Furry Scurry.  For those of you who don't know, the Furry Scurry is a HUGE fundraiser for the Denver Dumb Friends League (a great organization!).  It is a walk/run...  Louie does NOT run, so we walk!

Me, Louie & Beau at the Furry Scurry

I started doing the Furry Scurry 4 years ago.  I decided to take Godvia the first year, which turned out to be a horrible idea.  There are thousands of dogs, and it turned out Diva does not like other dogs (except her brothers).  She barked, growled, lunged and tried to eat a little dog!!  We did not even get to start the walk. Needless to say, the next year Diva stayed home and Louie made his debut!!  Beau came with us that year, but he was quite stiff at the end and stays home now.

Post Furry Scurry Refreshments
The first year, Louie was so much more interested in people and socializing, that we only made it a quarter of the way around the lake!  Louie finished the race by sitting in a kiddie pool.  The second year, Louie was still enjoying socializing, but we made it halfway around!  Last year, Louie figured out how to balance business and pleasure!  He made it the whole way around!!!!  And he met many, many people.  He even made it onto the website and the local news!!!

So, here we are again, getting pledges to help animals in need.  Getting psyched for the walk!  Here's to another successful Furry Scurry!!  If you would like to help Louie in his fundraising efforts, check out his Furry Scurry page!
